NECA 2015


Last week Barney Pottebaum – VP Sioux City, Brian Spader – VP Sioux Falls, Kevin Lytle – VP Omaha and Skip Perley – CEO all attended the NECA (National Electrical Contractors Association) Convention in San Francisco.

This is the 61st year for the NECA Convention and it provides attendees an opportunity to visit nearly 300 exhibitors, showing the new trends and equipment in the electrical industry.  The NECA Convention also offers workshops on a variety of topics, such as LED lighting, best practices in construction, arc flash regulations, future of power tools and many more interesting topics.

This is also a great opportunity to meet with your peers from other electrical firms across the country and share ideas and business opportunities.  It’s always interesting to talk with other electrical contractors to see how Thompson Electric compares to other firms.  What we learn from those discussions is, Thompson Electric is a leader in the industry when it comes to technology in the workplace, as well as, being a leader in the prefabrication of materials for the job-site.

The importance of attending the NECA Convention is paramount to staying on the leading edge in the electrical industry.  Thompson Electric is looked upon as a leader in the industry and it takes visionary leadership and a dedicated family of employees to stay that way.
